I am not a pro re-finisher and I also like a distressed crossed the prairie in the back of a Conestoga Wagon look... they will be spiffed up though. They cost hardly anything seriously at a sale by a family shelter in the EV. They used to run a cafe and are now selling old things they have in storage. I love big old looking pieces and I'm not a sleek modern type (nothing wrong with that tho! :) ) I am never going to be space-age :)
Also getting these reupholstered! They are so pretty!!
